World Class Strata Design 3D CX 6 Training

Dave Winslow will be in Las Vegas in September, to teach the popular ProSkills Course. This course is designed for the beginning-to-intermediate user, and quickly prepares you to use Strata Design 3D CX 6 at the production level. It includes modeling, texturing, lighting, rendering, an intro to animation and much more.

This is the course you need to ramp up quickly, start producing and making money with Strata.

Design 3D CX 6: Save Now - Don't Hesitate

Getting the power of faster rendering, improved modeling, and a more streamlined interface shouldn't wait. And those who act early are also rewarded with a lower price. If you upgrade today you pay only $149 - but if you wait much longer you'll miss the introductory price and have to pay the full $189 upgrade price.

Make sure you get the advantage of Design 3D CX 6 today while saving yourself money tomorrow.

Enfold 3D CX Video: Unique Aquo Invitation

Want to do more than just fold a piece of paper in half? With Strata Enfold 3D CX you can design complex folds with sophisticated die cuts and see the results right in Illustrator.

In this demonstration the fictional Aquo company launches a new energy drink with a party and a special print invitation.

Cafe Challenge: Location, Location, Location.

In this challenge, we're not looking for the hero, we're looking for the supporting characters. Specifically, we're looking for retail display set-pieces for products. For example, if you were going to present a kitchen appliance in a retail setting, you'd need to model the housewares aisle from a department store. For a mobile phone, you might want a wall display with other phones and accessories.

While there are many great free models in the Cafe's resources, it's rarely the main product that people are looking for. It's the surrounding elements, or the retail environments that product and package designers need to showcase their work. For this challenge, not only is a sharp render required, but also the model itself. At the end of the challenge, all scene files will be made available to the Strata community.

Coming Soon: Point, Shoot & Capture

The new Foto 3D CX 2 will be shipping soon and it will revolutionize the way you create models. You can simply walk around (or even fly around) any object, shoot a series of photographs and turn them into a 3D, fully textured model.

You get upgraded to Strata Foto 3D CX 2 free when you purchase Foto 3D 1.6 today. Don't wait to get up to speed!
